Three Birdhouses Painted, One to Go!

Up late last night finishing the painting of another birdhouse for a friend so that makes three done with one to go.  Here's a picture of the back of the latest one I finished in the wee hours this morning.  I enjoy this "fun" painting as a break from my oil painting.

I also plan on participating in the twitter art exhibit in 2014 in Orlando, FL and will be preparing something for that once I'm finished with my current birdhouses and order some supplies from Dick Blick.

Where My Inspiration Comes From - the Beauty that is New Mexico!!!

Ahhhh yes, the beauty of New Mexico.  The picture to the left is one I took as my husband drove down Tramway in Albuquerque, New Mexico of the Sandia Mountains the end of August 2013 while enjoying some monsoon showers and crisp air and skies.  There is just so much genuine beauty and natural inspiration here that it seems pictures don't even do it justice.

We also recently went to the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum and New Mexico Museum of Art to view traveling shows of Georgia O'Keeffe's artwork and some of the Taos artists.  I'm so inspired by such artists as Blumenschein, Duton, Sharp, Berninghaus, Couse and fortunate to live nearby such wonderful museums and galleries to view many of them up close and personal.  I fell in love with Blumenschein's work with a visit to the Albuquerque Museum, of which my husband and I are now members of.
